Tottenham followed their victory in the North London derby with a narrow win against Burnley.
Harry Kane converted from the penalty spot deep into the additional minutes of the first half to get Tottenham the only goal of the match to win 1-0 against a Burnley side that was in search of the points to steer away from relegation.
With Leeds United picking up a point from a 1-1 draw against Brighton, Burnley dropped into the relegation zone. Fortunately for Burnley, they have a game in hand and a goal-differene advantage to put a late fight against relegation.
MANCHESTER CITY HAS TO WAIT.
They came from 2 goals down to nearly picking up a win but Manchester City did enough but not enough to settle the title race and do their neighbors (Manchester United) a favor.
On the weekend that Liverpool won their second title of the season, West Ham allowed Liverpool to dream more about the quadruple by holding Manchester City to a point. Jarrod Bowen’s goals earned West Ham a point from a 1-1 draw with Manchester City.
Manchester City wanted the win to widen the gap between themselves and Liverpool in the title race, while West Ham was looking for the result to help them clinch Europa League qualification. Riyad Mahrez missed a game-winning opportunity by failing to convert his penalty into a goal in the 86th minute.
A MISS OPPORTUNITY FOR EVERTON.
At the end of the first half, a 10-man Everton side was on track to a win that would’ve been instrumental to their survival in the Premier League.
Burnley’s defeat against Tottenham meant Everton was practically safe from relegation with a victory at home against Brentford.
Two goals in quick succession after the hour mark got Brentford a 3-2 win to extend Everton’s relegation battles.
A MISSED OPPORTUNITY FOR ARSENAL
To keep hold of 4th place in the Premier League, Since Tottenham followed their North Lond derby victory with a win against Burnley, Arsenal had to bounce back from the North London derby defeat with a win at Newcastle to keep hold of 4th place. A 2-0 defeat has practically ended Arsenal’s bid for a UEFA Champions League qualification.
For Arsenal to qualify for the Champions League, they will need a victory against Everton and a Norwich City victory against Tottenham.
It is unlikely.
LIVERPOOL IS ON TRACK TO A QUADRUPLE
Joel Matip’s headed in the game-winning goal in the 67th minute for Liverpool to stay in the Premier League title race by taking the race to the last day of the season.
Manchester City and Liverpool will both have the backing of home support in their final game of the season. A win will make Manchester City champions. A win could make Liverpool the champions if Manchester City fails to win.
